energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. >>> welcome back to "hardball." the democrats' hope of keeping the u.s. senate are getting stronger by the day, especially when you zero in on ohio where sherrod brown seems to be successfully fighting back against the dirty, angry money. a new "columbus dispatch" poll has brown up over his opponent, josh mandel, by ten points. that's a big change from their tied race in late august. senator sherrod brown from ohio is with me from cleveland. thank you so much because i love seeing you here on this show because you represent to me the bread and butter, the

for my vote in '08. >> the energy that's building among the democratic base and among those independents who supported the president four years ago, that's happening again right now. >> and so you get a sense that both sides feel confident. it's really hard to tell, chuck, which way it will go because as we went block by block, we saw u a lot of energy on both sides, so it's about repeating for democrats. about trying to get back to tradition for republicans. chuck? >> we're going to do this one county at a time if we're lucky. there are not that many swing counties in the battleground states. thank you very much. >>> the world bank has cut its outlook for china. becky quick is here. i imagine fear of china in slow growth will spook the markets today? >> that's what's happening, chuck. we've been watching this morning. we've been coming in near five-year highs. this among, it's a little bit of a different picture. looks like we're opening down by 50 points or so with the dow. the big concern is what's happening with growth around the globe. the world bank cut its growth forecast for chin

on whaild what he would do to produce more domestic energy in this country. >> crack down on china if and when they cheat. number three, i'm going to make sure the training programs work for the workers today. we get our kids the education they need. i'm going to make sure that our parents and our kids and the teachers, they come first and the teachers union will have to come behind. number four, i will get us on track to a balanced budget and i will champion small business. i'll make sure our tax policies and our regulatory policies and health care, all these things come together to make it easier for small business to grow and thrive. we have to do that to get jobs going again because small businesses are where two-thirds of jobs are created. these five things will create 12 million jobs and bring rising take-home pay again. america needs this new direction. we cannot go in the path we've been on. we must restore america's strength andly do it with yo li your help. and i want you to know i'm confident this is going to happen. we're going to have good years ahead. the best is not

, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. humans -- even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? >>> all right. it's 42 past the hour. welcome back to "morning joe." joining us on set, u.s. senator from new york, senator chuck schumer. >> good morning. >> and joe? >> yes. >> you are going to behave. >> i'm going to try. i'm going to try. >> he always behaves. >> well, not really, actually. >> i want to ask you what we asked senator mccain.

in one day in ohio. we have great energy. the governor's going to win this state, it's going to be close, he's going to win. >> he said race changed on wednesday he's talking about the debate. yeah. i don't think so. i'm not feeling it on the ground. i've been here in ohio. i don't feel it. i think people definitely have an opinion about how the debate went, but at the end of the day it's going to matter about what policies. if mitt romney is going to privatize the medicare program and turn it into a voucher system, and the voucher only goes up two or 3% a year when everyone knows health care costs don't go up 2 or 3% a year, or gut the medicare program, we were a he an older state, we have a lot of seniors that access the medicaid programs for nursing homes, people who have children with disabilities access the medicaid program in ohio, when they see the romney/ryan budget when it hits the ground, he's going to lose. he's just not going to be able to carry enough independent voters. as i said on top of the auto rescue, we have people that have actually felt the obama policies help them.
